By way of introduction: my name is Greg, and I’m an associate editor for American Libraries. In my view, Inside Scoop isn’t a place for “official statements”—they have their place and their purpose, I guess, but this isn’t it. So what exactly will Inside Scoop entail? For me, there’s an easy answer and a hard answer. The easy (right) answer is: This is a place for American Libraries editors to share information that we think is interesting and worth sharing with readers, under our own names, that can be shared effectively in a blog format.
